This and that about the market, the TSP, maybe some politics, and life.

  1. TSP Talk: Some follow thru, and a test of resistance is next

    Stocks continued to move off the lows with another big rally on Tuesday. The Dow jumped 492-points - off the highs of the day again but obviously a big gain. The Nasdaq led on the upside with a 3% gain, followed by small caps, while the S&P 500 and I-fund saw gains near 2%. Bonds were down as yields continue to bounce back from last week's decline. A lot of good action out there but the main concern now may be whether we get a test of the lows.

  2. TSP Talk: Another bounce, but still in a range

    Stocks bounced back to start the week. The Dow gained 647-points, which was off the highs but obviously a meaningful move and the biggest one day gain since March. The S&P 500 gained over 1% while the small caps of the Russell 2000 and the Transports each gained 2% or more. Bonds fell sharply as yields rallied back from Friday's move lower.

  3. TSP Talk: Can the bears keep control?

    There was a nice little rally toward the end of the day on Friday but once again the bears had their way putting another dent in the stock market. By the close the Dow had only lost 60-points but the broader indices, particularly the small caps, were beaten down hard. Bonds rallied as yields slipped after the disappointing jobs report. The unemployment rate fell to 4.2%, which was a positive surprise, but the 210,000 jobs created in November was well off the 573,000 that was expected.
  4. November Jobs Report

    Job growth disappoints in November

    Nonfarm payrolls increased by 210,000 month. That was well below Wall Street expectations of 573,000.

    The unemployment rate fell to 4.2%, a 0.4% percentage point decline
  5. TSP Talk: Can the big bounce hold?

    Stocks rebounded in early trading for a second straight day on Thursday. The difference yesterday was that the rally held into the close. The Dow gained over 600-points for a gain of nearly 2%, while the small caps gained 2.5%. The S&P 500 lagged a bit getting held back by big tech and the likes of Apple, Amazon, Facebook, and Microsoft, which were all down on the day. Bonds were mostly flat while yields and the dollar moved slightly higher.
